Staff Pick Notes

With the inspiration for this bottling being rooted in creating a refreshing and lively bubbly, Montinore delivers with such a playful and gleaming sparkler. Using a similar composition of estate grown grapes akin to their “Borealis” Edelzwicker Blend, this off-dry slightly frizzante speaks of lemon and lime zest, honey, crisp grassy and blooming floral aromatics. With such a clean, light mouthfeel that tingles your palate with a fervor that pitches the idea to continue sipping, this can be what puts the pep in your step and move forth with vivacé (brisk, spirited manner) for the rest of the year.

They are careful to retain the...

Gewürztraminer

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates,...

Pinot Gris

Pinot Grigio is an Italian synonym for the French Pinot Gris variety, but many more people have had Pinot Grigio than a Pinot Gris. At its most basic level, the grape produces varietals that are smooth and easy to drink, and perfect with a huge range of dishes that just beg to be paired with a fresh white wine. There is an entire spectrum of Pinot Gris/Grigio, however, the best of them being...

Oregon

The largest wine region in Oregon is the Willamette Valley, lying between the cities of Portland and Eugene and home to most of Oregon’s wineries. As it does not have one homogeneous climate, it has been broken up into several different AVAs. In the best of them, the perfect amounts of wind, rain, sun exposure, and altitude combine to give Pinot Noir the warm days and cool nights it needs in...
